    Hello. I got my 8x 2 days ago and immediately after the first boot I noticed it's not as smooth as I thought it will be. I watched some
    reviews and it looked just fine, but this is strange. It happens while scrolling through the tiles or through the list of installed apps and
    basically in every menu, too. When I "flick" with my thumb and let it slide, it goes extremely smooth - no problem with that. However,
    when I my thumb is down on the screen and I try to scroll like that (just moving an inch or so), it gets kinda grippy and laggy, totally
    different performance. It's really hard to explain how exactly it looks, but it seems it depends on what I do with my thumb.

    Flicking goes smooth like it should on a dual-core 1.5ghz, but slower scrolling is just ridiculous. I really like the phone and the OS,
    but this drives me crazy. Now I'm searching through the youtube, watching people scrolling on their phones doing reviews and
    everything looks OK. (For example, this review at around 7:15 - scrolling is consistent and smooth, it really looks nice no matter how he/she scrolls)

    I installed the Facebook app and scrolling through it is really nice, so I can't say why it's not on the homescreen. Does anyone else has this kind of problem,
    or is it just normal? Tried factory reset, it's still same. A friend of mine got 8S, which is less powerful and I can notice it's not supersmooth, but actually looks better than my 8x.
    I'll go and try the phone at the shop and see if it's any different.

    I don't really get what do you mean by laggy but I assume you talk about the text not being read-able while scrolling, that's because of the screen's technology. If you went for 920, you would see a difference.

    That's unnecessary, and to the TS maybe you have a bad phone, my phone and every other 8X I have used or seen was as smooth or better than say the Iphone 5.

    The portico update does improve stability and overall performance so if its available you should install it.

    I can't believe what I found out! While "screen magnifier" is on, it causes that terrible lag. I feel so dumb, god knows how I haven't noticed that when I turned
    it on the first time. This now feels like a completely different phone. It is so weird, I keep turning it on and off and I'm still shocked how and WHY it changes the scrolling performance.
    Looks like some kind of a bug or something...

    Yeah, I assume Nokia did a better job with that, but still I manage to read it quite well. I was going to get lumia in the first place, but it still hasn't arrived here so picked a htc.
